Mapping DB2 databases after a reinstall

Due to the vagaries of software, I had to reinstall DB2 on my laptop. Unfortunately, the existing databases were not automatically added to the Control Center.

Physically, DB2 stores its databases in a directory similar to C:\DB2\NODE0000. Logically, there must a way to remap them. So, how does one remap them?

To list databases stored at a path:
% db2 list db directory on c:

To recatalog them:
% db2 catalog db SAMPLE on c:
